S Voice on the Galaxy S3 passes the “woodchuck” test [Humor]

That Siri grabbed the majority of the limelight in the aftermath of the iPhone 4S launch would be an understatement: to me, it seemed like the phone was marketed almost exclusively with it’s voice assistant feature. But what the people loved, more than actually productive stuff like scheduling appointments or sending texts, were the more... random commands (some of which are admittedly hilarious).

So, to convince people who might for some strange reason need the ability to decipher those commands, Android Central’s Phil Nickinson put the Samsung Galaxy S III’s S Voice feature to the “woodchuck” test. Good news, folks, the phone passed.

Last year, Konami brought their classic X-Men arcade game to Android 18 years after its first release. And if you haven’t given it a try already, and are in the US, you got no more excuses: the app is free today on Amazon App Store.

Glancing through the reviews, the game clearly has some issues. But hey, who doesn’t love playing these oldies once in a while?

Gameloft’s clearly excited for their upcoming summer releases. Having teased M.I.B 3 and Asphalt 7: Heat already, they’ve now posted a video where Arnaud Bonnard, the executive producer behind the latest N.O.V.A. sequel, discusses the effort the developer has put in for the visual effects in the game.

If you’re a fan of the series, do have a watch. If you’re not, still do. This looks like a really exciting game that I honestly can’t wait for.

Asphalt 7: Heat and Men In Black 3 coming to an Android near you!

Mobile gaming heavy weight, Gameloft, looks to have some big titles headed to the Play Store this summer. We have already seen trailers and images from their upcoming N.O.V.A. 3 installment which looks pretty sick and it appears that we can now expect to see two more additions to the Gameloft library.

Asphalt 7: Heat was briefly hinted at the Galaxy S3 announcement a few days ago and will be the follow up to the well-known racing game for Android, Asphalt 6: Adrenaline. As usual with past Asphalt titles, we can expect to see even more amazing graphics, awesome levels and pedal-to-the-metal racing action. The fact that it was included in the GS3 announcement suggests that it may be pre-installed on the GS3 or might possibly be a GS3 exclusive for some time.

Just in time for its release in theaters, Men In Black 3 for Android will be available on May 25 for free. However, MIB 3 will follow the recently popular mobile game trend of offering freemium gameplay, allowing players to make purchases within the game for weapon upgrades, unlocking levels and having access to other in-game content. MIB 3 is Gameloft’s first collaboration with gaming mogul Sony Mobile, so it’ll be exciting to see what this partnership will develop together. The movie is expected do really well this summer and Gameloft is hoping to ride that train all the way to the bank.

So who is looking forward to this summer now? Whether you like movies or prefer games, it seems that you wont be hard pressed to find some decent entertainment.

How many of you are heading over to get a little hands-on before making the purchase? And if you already have one, do share your early impressions with us in the comments.


HTC says “restrictions” prevent AT&T One X from joining in their bootloader unlocking program

htc-one-x-display

After a huge backlash in 2011, HTC changed their strategy and said they would start allowing customers to unlock the bootloaders on their devices. Over the past six months HTC has unlocked over 45 devices, but it looks like the AT&T One X might not be participating in that program quite yet.

Android hacker Paul O’Brien of MoDaCo noticed that his AT&T One X kept getting an error when he tried to unlock the bootloader, but he assumed this was an issue with pre-release software. Now it’s been confirmed that others are seeing the same issue, after the AT&T One X went on sale today.

Paul reached out to HTC who quickly responded with a message that doesn’t look good for AT&T customers.

HTC is committed to listening to users and delivering customer satisfaction. Since announcing our commitment to unlockable bootloaders, HTC has worked to enable our customers to unlock the bootloader on more than 45 devices over the past six months. In some cases, however, restrictions prevent certain devices from participating in our bootloader unlocking program. Rest assured, HTC is committed to assisting developers in unlocking bootloaders for HTC devices and we'll continue to unlock additional devices in the future.HTC Representative

Last year Peter Chou, HTC CEO, said, “There has been overwhelmingly customer feedback that people want access to open bootloaders on HTC phones [and] we’ve listened. I’m confirming we will no longer be locking the bootloaders on our devices.”

Unfortunately in this case it looks like AT&T has overturned the will of its customers. This doesn’t mean that the One X will never see its bootloader officially unlocked, but it might take a little outcry to convince the carrier to change their mind.

AT&T has a history of crippling the Android experience, but they have gotten better over the years by allowing users to install non-Market apps and improving the speed of software updates.

If you planned on buying the HTC One X from AT&T (or already picked one up), let AT&T know what you think of their decision to keep the bootloader locked.
